What's New
Take a closer look at the 10 most important reasons to acquire the new CorelCAD 2013 now:

    NEW! AutoCAD DWG 2013 support
    CorelCAD 2013 now reads the new DWG file format of AutoCAD 2013, enabling full compatibility when working with customers and partners who use this software. Plus, strong read support is paramount for users needing to receive and manipulate files that have been created with the new AutoCAD version. CorelCAD 2013 saves to DWG natively so you enjoy full compatibility, support, features and CorelCAD file attributes.

    NEW! More OS support: Windows 8 and Mac OS X Mountain Lion (10.8)
    In addition to the existing support for Windows XP, Vista 7 and Mac OS 10.5+, CorelCAD 2013 now offers support for Windows 8 users to access CorelCAD as a Windows 8 Desktop Application, and Mac users can take full advantage of Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) features, including full screen application mode.

    Native 64-bit Windows support
    Each operating system offers a powerful way to support the workflow process. For Windows users, there is a 64-bit version of CorelCAD to manage and process large CAD files, plus significantly increase workflow performance.

    Improved performance and application speed
    With an increase in application speed, both Windows and Mac users will benefit from increased efficiency and enhanced performance. In addition, an improved memory use will expedite the loading process for larger drawings, reducing the loading time by up to 40%.

    NEW! Align viewport tool
    With the new functionality within the Viewport command, it’s now easier than ever to arrange the elements of your drawings and gain better, more accurate alignment in sheets. Users no longer have to guess if their locations are precise. Instead, the viewports are aligned by the geometry on the inside of the viewport.

    NEW! Revision cloud tool
    Make the review and revision process simpler and more efficient by using the Cloud command to create revision clouds. Revision clouds are used in CAD drawings to highlight areas that require or contain revisions. Drawing areas can be accentuated with specific shapes such as rectangular, elliptical and freehand Clouds. In addition, you can also set the specific layer for a Cloud, the line color, line style and line weight, and also adjust the radius of the sequential arcs of Clouds.

    NEW! DGN Underlay
    DGN files originate from MicroStation or other CAD software and you can then specify layer visibility of a DGN Underlay that is a referenced DGN file in a drawing. In addition, you can attach, clip boundaries, layer and detach underlays from current drawings. The underlay functionality allows you to display only part of a DGN Underlay since the entity is clipped at a boundary you create or specify.

    NEW! In-place TEXT editing
    CorelCAD now enables text editing right on the screen instead of using a separate dialog for editing text in CAD drawings. This functionality mimics text editing in CorelDRAW and other graphics software applications. With in-place editing, you can modify the definitions of Components, which are Block definitions or referenced drawings in the current drawing known as Elements. For efficiency, the Component instances in the drawing show the changes in real time.

    NEW! ExplodeX command
    The ExplodeX command will convert Ellipses and Splines into Polylines. This command is particularly beneficial in preparing drawings to export to other software applications or devices that don’t support Ellipses or Splines, such as legacy engraving devices. Additionally, you can choose the Explode command to explode other complex entities like Blocks.

    NEW! Automation capabilities

    • VSTA (Microsoft Visual Studio Tools for Applications) improvements
      The VSTA Manager toolbar allows you to record, edit and run VSTA macros, which enable you to perform repetitive tasks and automate command sequences. Create unique macros using the built-in features of VSTA. The standard macros are created with VSTA’s built-in features, and to create advanced macros you can use the integrated development environment. Best of all, you don’t need programming experience to use macros!

    • NEW! Continued LISP
      Take advantage of innovative support for continued lisp commands. CorelCAD supports LISP routines so you can leverage existing custom solutions. The continued LISP support can be leveraged for use with CorelCAD and avoids extra programming steps. Users familiar with LISP in other CAD applications will find CorelCAD programming just as easy to master since it supports the same structure.

A true CAD solution

    Native DWG files
    Open, work with and save files in DWG format for worry-free collaboration with colleagues, suppliers and partners. CorelCAD uses DWG as its native file format and offers DXF and DWF support up to AutoCAD 2013 file format versions.

    Industry-standard CAD features
    Be productive immediately in an environment filled with familiar features and tools. CorelCAD is compatible with all major CAD programs, so experienced users will feel comfortable with the familiar command bar, command aliases, and menu and toolbar items.

    Efficient user interface
    Work more efficiently with dockable toolbars, right-click shortcut menus and a Properties palette.

    Legacy file format support
    Save drawings back to R12 DWG or DXF format to work with them on legacy hardware devices or using older software, and recover damaged DWG and DXF files in all format versions.

Precision 2D drafting tools

    Entity snaps
    Use CorelCAD smart tools, such as entity snap, entity snap guides and polar guides to work faster.

    Entity grips
    Save time using entity grips to quickly reposition, align, copy or resize entities.

    Properties docker and Property Painter
    Manipulate entity attributes, such as layer, color, line style and more with the Properties palette or copy properties from other entities.

    Custom coordinates
    Create custom coordinate systems to align the construction plane to drawing objects.

    Smart Dimension tools
    Create precise dimensions as aligned or horizontal/ vertical linear dimensions, radial or diameter dimensions or angular dimensions. Let the new Smart Dimension tool suggest the most appropriate dimension type automatically for Lines, PolyLine segments, Arcs, Circles and Rings.

3D design tools for advanced modeling

    3D viewing capabilities
    View 3D models from multiple viewpoints or roll them in 3D space interactively. Use Tiled Viewports to split a drawing into multiple view tiles and set them to display your 3D model in different views, such as front, right, top and isometric. Or choose Shaded view or Rendered view to change the display mode.

    3D modeling tools
    Add 3D solid primitives to your design and use Boolean operations to unite, intersect and subtract bodies.

    From 2D to 3D
    Extrude or revolve 2D entities, sweep 2D entities along a path, or loft between 2D entities to create solid objects.

    Editing solids
    Slice and intersect solids, and edit edges, faces and bodies of 3D solids. New advanced editing tools include Filleting Edges of 3D Solids, and coloring, moving, rotating and offsetting individual faces of 3D solids.

    3D mouse support*
    Navigate in 3D with support for 3Dconnexion input devices. Simultaneously pan and zoom, and rotate 2D and 3D drawings by moving (push, pull, twist, or tilt) the cap of the 3D mouse. Assign your preferred navigation settings or custom commands to buttons of the 3D mouse.*

Compatibility for a smoother workflow

    CorelDRAW and Corel DESIGNER compatibility*
    Import CorelDRAW and Corel DESIGNER files into CorelCAD as model space objects with a representation in a layout sheet. As direct way to import drafts from CorelDRAW and Corel DESIGNER for advanced 2D and 3D modeling in CorelCAD, you can work with:

    • Multi-page CDR/DES files
    • CorelDRAW files from version 8 to the current release (X6)
    • Corel DESIGNER files from version 10 to the current release (X5)

    Export to CorelDRAW X5 (CDR) and Corel DESIGNER X5 (DES) formats* to easily re-purpose your work in presentations and marketing-related deliverables.

    Easy file sharing
    Collaborate and share more easily with colleagues and clients with support for leading formats, including PDF, SVG, and DWF.

    PDF and DGN Underlay functionality
    Attach one or more pages of a PDF document to your drawing and control the layer visibility and clipping (masking areas) of the PDF Underlay. DGN files originated from MicroStation or other CAD software can be inserted as DGN Underlay. You can attach, clip boundaries, layer and detach underlays from current drawings. The clipping functionality allows you to display only part of a DGN or PDF Underlay since the entity is masked at a boundary you create or specify.

    Collaborating in 3D
    Open and work with 3D models with support for the ACIS model (.sat) file format. You can also save a 3D design to ACIS format to repurpose it with the advanced visualization options in the Corel DESIGNER Technical Suite Add-On Right Hemisphere Deep Exploration CCE or to create high-quality technical illustrations with Corel DESIGNER (available separately).

    Print 3D designs from CorelCAD
    Export multiple 3D solid objects to STL (Stereolithography), the most commonly used file format for 3D prints (used as processing format in 3D printers). Print 3D prototypes using STL support for direct connection to 3D printers.

    Print Configurations for advanced printing options
    Save your print settings for individual layout sheets using the new Print Configuration Manager in CorelCAD! Store all your advanced print settings, including paper size, scale, orientation, color to line width assignments and many more, in named configurations to use them across CAD files and projects.

    Annotation and collaboration
    Take collaboration a step further with the innovative VoiceNotes tool, which lets you add recorded messages, reminders or instructions directly in your drawing. You can also easily mark up drawing items with freehand sketches and mask portions of a drawing to exempt them from annotations.

    Work with GIS files
    Visualize maps and geographic models created by geographic information systems (GIS) applications with support for ESRI Shape (*.shp) files.

    Pack & Go command
    Create a package (ZIP archive or folder) containing the current drawing and its dependent files, such as References, referenced images, referenced PDF files, font files, font mapping files, PrintStyle files, and Print Configuration files.

Automation and custom enhancements
